POLAR BEARS

Website Map.png

The range of the polar bear subpopulation that is found in Nunatsiavut extends across seasonal sea ice from Newfoundland and Labrador to Greenland, Quebec, and Nunavut. Therefore, monitoring such a wide-ranging population is quite expensive and requires inter-jurisdictional partnerships. The Davis Strait subpopulation is surveyed to estimate abundance approximately every ten years and requires two years of data collection. The last population estimate took place in 2007, however, results from the most recent 2017-2018 field seasons will update this estimate soon.
